Roofs are one of those things that we give very little though to when we think of our home – we can’t see them and we take for granted the essential job that they do keeping our homes and us warm and dry, so it is often only when there is a problem with the roof that we give any thought to them.

When we have a problem with our roofs, it is always best to get a professional in to repair such as this Cheltenham roofing based company. Not only is it dangerous to try to climb up onto a roof to fix it yourself, but it is also something that if you get it wrong you could in fact make the problem worse!


Here are two of the common problems that can happen with a roof…


Tree Damage – If you have lots of tall trees surrounding your home, it is advisable to make sure that you have a tree surgeon keep them looked after regularly. This is because they can pose a threat to your roof. A damaged tree could easily be blown over during a storm and land on your roof, as well as the fact that the branches can erode the roof tiles over time.

Water Damage – Sometimes older roofs can succumb to the elements and water can get in through the cracks in the roof. Eventually this water makes its way into your home which is when you will notice that there is a problem. It needs to be dealt with as soon as possible as it can cause a great deal of damage to walls and ceilings as well as the electrics.
